You're doing the Lord's work, my friend!

Many if not most of these TV scores from the 60s and 70s will probably never get a proper CD or digital release. This may be the closest film score fans will over come to being able to appreciate all of this great music!

What to expect from Monday's suites.

Another "Harry O" suite, a Quinn Martin Production (hopefully this one get's MV's attention if he's not heard it...), maybe a "Mannix" suite, and possibly something else (maybe a CURIOSITY CORNER item). The last two are subject to change and may end up being something else altogether.

This week's suites.

"Harry O"

Suite #3 for Richard Clements. The count down begins of the remaining suites; in this order once a week for the next three weeks you will get: Richmond, Clements, and finally Goldenberg.


Suite #1 (of two) covering the second (and final) episode of the series that Allyn Ferguson and Jack Elliot scored.

Composer: Patrick Williams

This was a failed pilot from Quinn Martin Productions that aired in 1978. Just awful, with horrible continuity (cloths and things change from scene-to-scene in parts) and bad writing. Apparently done on the cheap and intended as a sort of American version of "The New Avengers", this rightfully failed and is forgotten. You need not watch the pilot -- spare yourself.

This is somewhere around 90% of the score, I'd estimate. Unfortunately, there is only one load of the pilot and there is fucking news break talking over most of the end credits music, so I had to break it up into two short pieces.


"Dream Wife"
Composer: Lyn Murray

A failed pilot from 1965 that didn't even have an IMDb page until I added it a week or two ago.

Shirley Jones stars as a wife who can hear people's thoughts and uses it for a better marriage, taking care of her son, and even trying to save people's lives.

It's a comedy I can't say was bad, it's just … there.

Hi Justin many thanks for the latest batch brilliant!

You're welcome.

I'm surprised "Escapade" got so many more hits. Maybe it was because it was a QM project.

What to expect from Monday's suites:

"Harry O"

and "Baretta"

The fourth suite is up in the air at the moment.

I spent the last month using a mind-boggling amount of time working on the Immel suites for "Police Woman", doing what I did for the "Baretta" pilot -- on suite #1 I went through the PW series and I think I found like 98% of all tracked Immel stuff and used clean/cleaner parts to replace FX/SFX heavy parts. Certain cues I felt were worth that time -- it's great stuff. So, they're like 99% done being edited and now the volume raising begins for dip-downs. I'll have further notes when I post the first suite either Monday or the Monday after next.

This week's suites.

"Harry O"

Suite of score with selections from all episodes Kim Richmond scored.


Suite #1 (of four) for Tom Scott.

NOTE: Not as much tracking of Scott cues was done, so I wasn't able to do much salvage work as I did on the first Grusin suite. One or two of the Scott suites I left in Grusin stuff that was edited onto presumably original Scott material, so as to eliminate sudden random beginnings.


Suite #2 for Allyn Ferguson and Jack Elliott. These first two suites cover the second score they did for the series (which was also the last one). Eventually I'll make a suite or two to cover the other episode they did.

"Go Girl"
Composer: Wayne Bickerton and Tony Waddington

I'll have to explain this one. "Go Girl" was a thirteen-episode TV series from the early 1970's that never aired. Made as some kind of weird 1960's-ish "Charlie's Angels"/James Bond adventure knock-off, what little information that is online states the series was wiped and recorded over. Somehow the pilot survived and was released on DVD years ago paired with another project. It starred a hot blonde girl named Luan Peters.

The score is in the kind of adventure 1960's/1970's mode you'd hope for. Like me you've no doubt not heard other either composer, but please don't let that make you skip the suite -- if you've enjoyed the funky and jazz TV scoring I've covered before, this should be right up your alley. It takes about thirty seconds to really get going.

Hopefully the tapes for the scoring were not recorded over, or are at least the estate of either composer (assuming they are dead) has copies. If more episodes should be found or somebody has them and would like to contact me so I can made further suites, see my profile for e-mail.

More great stuff!

As to the Grusin/Scott BARETTA music mix, seems like Grusin's "Tell" is an abundance of jazz flute and more traditional orchestral stuff woven together; Scott seems to be almost all funky jazz, very little traditional style scoring.

You're welcome. And thanks for helping to make "Baretta" possible.

This is really early, but what to expect from Monday's suites, and what to expect from most of the rest of the year on TV series threads:

Monday's suites: One more fictitious Richard Day; yes, the final Richard Clements from "Harry O", another suite from "Hunter" by Shores, and two more with "Richard" in them. After that there is not enough for full Richard Day's.

What to expect from suites this remainder of the year:
"Mannix" (season one will be fully covered, and parts of other seasons; can't do the whole show -- flash drive is over half-way filled up! Sorry).
"The Law and Harry McGraw" (suites for all episodes, covering all three composers).
A TV movie score by Fred Steiner.
Leonard Rosenman.
A tiny bit of documentary scores.
Dana Kaproff.
"The Dirty Dozen: The Series".
"Remington Steele".
Mark Snow.
Mike Post & Pete Carpenter.
Morton Stevens.
And more; can't give everything away, where's the fun in that? :-)

What to expect from TV series threads (subject to change as channels or videos get deleted):
All of August is police series/emergency services shows.
September is all war.
October will be a month of thrillers.
Amongst the series you will see in the remainder of this year: finishing up "The Law & Harry McGraw" series (all episodes are up now; the only "Murder, She Wrote" spin-off series made), "Sarge", "Get Christie Love!", "Chase", and I go out to sea with Jacques Cousteau (why yes, that does mean John Scott!).
